Example text

The death of Che Guevara marked a singular historical moment, when the execution of an heroic guerrilla commander transformed itself into a sign announcing history's silence, when the impossibility of capitalism was visibly registered in the blood of a martyr and its logic fully impugned. A reminder of history's deafening silence took place on June 28, 1997, when the body of Che Guevara was discovered near the airship where it had been discarded thirty years earlier. A sense of wonder at the discovery of Che's remains afforded a steady undertow to the anticommunist moralizing that had reached its crescendo in the gleeful eel- THE MAN IN THE BLACK BERET 7 ebration of the fall of the Soviet Union.

Freire managed to outlive Che by over thirty years, and the world has been a greater place because of what he was able to accomplish in his long and arduous journey on the road to liberation. Few individuals have been as successful in moving the human spirit forward as these two men. They have taught us that history cannot erase revolutionary struggle based on the heroic aspirations of the uncommon lives of 'common' people. They have also revealed to us that the wounds of history cannot be healed without revolutionary love and a warrior's spirit tempered to do battle in the streets, in the boardrooms, in the classrooms, and in the factories of the capitalist present-and also in the caverns of the human heart.

199) to the current era where Christian fundamentalists such as the Reverend Jerry Falwell proclaim capitalism, democracy, and Jesus to be as seamlessly connected as the Shroud of Turin and equally as mystical, there has been a willful ignorance surrounding the paralyzing effects that the victorious embrace of capitalism has had on the powerless and destitute of the world. For it cannot be denied that the globalization of labor and capital have brought about material shifts in cultural practices and the proliferation of new contradictions between capitalism and labor that progressive educators who work in schools of education have been hard-pressed to respond to, as opposed to react to, successfully.
